Minuscule 1073 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), δ97 (von Soden),[1] is a 10th or 11th-century Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament on parchment. The manuscript has survived in complete condition. It contains additional non-biblical matter. There is no marginalia.


The codex contains the text of the four Gospels and the Book of Acts on 334 parchment leaves (size 22 cm by 17 cm).[2] The original part of the codex with the text of Matthew 1:1-6:1 (folios 1-9) was lost. It was supplied by a later hand on paper.[3]

The text is written in one column per page, 23 lines per page.[2][4]

It has additional non-biblical material by John Chrysostom and Gregory of Nazianzus (On Pascha) at the end of the codex.[5]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Hermann von Soden included it to the textual family Kx (standard Byzantine text).[6] Kurt Aland placed the text of the codex in Category V.[7]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents the textual family Kx in Luke 1, Luke 10, and Luke 20.[6]

It lacks the spurious texts of Matthew 16:2b–3 (Signs of the times) and the Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11).[5] The text of Matthew 16:2b-3 was added by a later hand in the margin.[5]


C. R. Gregory dated the manuscript to the 11th century.[5] Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 10th or 11th century.[4]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Gregory (1073e and 285a). C. R. Gregory saw it in 1886.[5] In 1908 Gregory gave it the siglum 1073.[1]

Currently the manuscript is housed at the Great Lavra (A' 51), at Mount Athos.[2][4]
